, obama's are moving down. mitt romney's winning independents. >> it is just amazing how quickly narratives change in this election. last week, it was, you know, doomsday for romney, then the debate happened. who knows what it's going to be next week. is it still wide open? >> i think it's moved from a race that was heavily tilted toward obama, the president was just beating romney as a campaigner, and the debate has now made it much more of a horse race, and we're likely to see fluidity right to the end and the win may go because we see these numbers move three, four points on a debate, it may be a couple points on the unemployment numbers. the win may go to the guy who has the last big play. who has the last big favorable play. i don't think these debates are fool's gold. i know cornell wouldn't have said that if obama had won. i think they were really important turning point but it's turned it into a much, much closer race. >> cornell, ari, david, thank you. fascinating stuff. >> thank you. >>> let us know what you think. we're on facebook. follow me on twitter right now. >>>
to pull that down a little bit. i do believe that mitt romney has not demonstrated that he's agile. he's not kind of light on his feet. so the idea that if you had a tough spot in a debate, whether the moderator pushed or obama pushed and could romney not talking from zingers that he's rehearsed, not talking from talking points, be agile enough to say i can answer these questions because these are my convictions. i think romney's biggest problem is a lack of conviction. he kind of operates and looks as if he's wearing someone else's skin and he's talking using someone else's beliefs. >> ross, what do you make of that? i think barack obama definitely the last time he did this four years ago, he showed flashes of a temper. which if i was in the romney camp, i would be just keep goading him. i'm sure that's what they are trying to calm down in the obama camp, don't lose your temper. romney is pretty cool. i watched him under fire in the republican nominee debates. he was a pretty cool customer. obama can get rattled. >> he had a couple bad moments. the famous however many thousands of dol
. >> bring it up to knock it down. to disavow it. in other words, romney, he had a really wonderful opportunity, remember when rush limbaugh said those hateful things about sandra fluke, that georgetown law student, he had a great opportunity to smack down the fanatical fringe. he didn't do it. it was a missed opportunity. doesn't mean romney agrees with the crazy things limbaugh said but he missed an opportunity to assert himself against the fringe and this is an opportunity for romney, if he's got any sense and he's a terribly bright guy, a very decent guy, but he's a bit of a coward where the right wing is concerned. i do hope, it would help romney, but he should stand up in that debate and raise it himself and disavow attacks from five years ago on the president that seem to me to be driven perhaps by race rather than economics. >> we'll see if more does come out in the next half hour or so. again, we'll continue it. gloria borger, paul begala, boyce watkins, eric erickson, thank you very much. 50 million people are expected to watch tomorrow's presidential debate. what presiden
] >> mitt romney countered that 7.8% is nothing to celebrate. >> the reason it's come down is primarily due to the fact that more and more people have just stopped looking for work. >> some conservatives continue to suggest that the president's labor department cooked the jobs report for his political gain, but most experts have roundly slapped down that possibility. numbers and politics with economist mark zandi and douglas holtz-akin and jackie of the "new york times" and cnn's chief white house correspondent jessica yellin, next. plus prese. i have a cold, and i took nyquil, but i'm still stubbed up.

upside down that romney will have such a strong performance that it is going to be sort of a game changer. i asked kevin madden about that yesterday, and he said he doesn't think that the campaign doesn't think that one event, one moment during these debates is going to decide and determine everything. they just don't see it that way. they like christie's enthusiasm, they say they're feeding off of it, but they don't exactly agree with that assessment. brooke, we're all sort of looking to tomorrow night to be this big moment that is going to change everything and be a make or break moment. it may not turn out that way. it may be a draw. the candidates move on to the next debate and candy crowley gets her shot. >> i look forward to seeing candy crowley. to quote her, she said chris christie did not get the memo when it comes to downplaying expectations. we shall see, jim acosta. we shall see. quick reminder for all of us, tomorrow night, the big night, the president versus his challenger face to face, special coverage here on cnn 7:00 p.m. eastern. so watch on tv, hop online, go to cnn.com
what? those same weapons systems could shoot down israeli airliners. it is interesting romney says no daylight between him and the israelis but i bet there is on this issue. >> respond, ambassador williamson. >> well, the type of passive and lead from the behind approach is not only resulted in 30,000 dead in syria, and over 100,000 refugees in our nato allied turkey, destabilization in the region and now missile or arms being fired between syria and turkey, our nato ally for whom we have obligations but the same approach resulted in iran getting much, much closer to nuclear breakout, resulted in the 20 embassies that had demonstrations. >> but what about the specific -- the specific -- >> american flag burned and the black flag of al qaeda raised and american ambassador killed. >> the specific point that collin just made if you give shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles to some guys they could shoot down israeli aircraft? how do you prevent that? >> well, how you prevent it is not waiting until it's out of hand. you get involved earlier. you anticipate the problem. you lead. that
of the race. it does look like mitt romney is getting a bounce out of the debate. a gallup poll taken over seven days your bre break it down, in three days since the debate the race is tied at 47%. the three days prior to the debate, a five--point lead for president obama. that gone over the last three days. gallup asked who won the debate. last wednesday among debate watchers, 97% of republicans said mitt romney won, 70% of independents said mitt romney won, and 49% of democrats gave it to romney. >>> meanwhile president obama's debate performance left a big opening for the folks at "saturday night live." >> number 20 -- >> excuse me, governor. mr. president? >> i'm sorry. yeah. yeah, what's up? >> mr. president. governor has just said that he killed osama bin laden. would you care to respond? >> um, no, you two go ahead. >> not bad. big bird made a surprise appearance on weekend update, he took the high road when addressing romney's pledge to eliminate money for public television. mr. bird said he didn't want to ruffle any feathers. >> thank you very much. so as we inch toward election d
americans are looking at the romney ryan ticket as one that will address issues and will deliver a plan that has impact on middle class americans, that will bring down taxes for all americans. period. there's only one candidate that's actually talking about raising taxes and there's another candidate, the romney ryan ticket, that will cut taxes for all americans. so i think as we go into this, we'll hear a lot more of that. obviously at the debate and this is the next phase f that campaign. >> mitt romney leads according to our poll, on unemployment and the deficit. let me ask you this, ben, because one thing our viewers may assume is that democratic base is now energized and the convention is now partly responsible for that. rece recently, jim -- our new poll, how do you feel strength of support, 72% of voters are strongly excited. that's a virtual tie and extremely or very enthusiastic about voting in november, 65% of republicans. 64% of democrats. does that worry you? in '08, part of the reason the president won was his people were way more enthusiastic than john mccain's. >> we hear
down prices. a power outage at one refinery and a fire at another have pushed up prices in california. >>> so mitt romney is set to give his speech on foreign policy in virginia just about two hours from now. the romney campaign has released excerpts ahead of the speech and it contains sharp criticisms of president obama's policies in the middle east. the obama campaign has already hit back, even before romney has spoken. the obama camp released a new ad this morning targeting what it calls romney's foreign policy inexperience. >> when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, "the new york times" said romney's knee-jerk response showed an extraordinary lack of presidential character. even republican experts said romney's remarks were the worst possible reaction to what happened. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> that's what you call a preemptive strike. joining me now, cnn contributor l.z. granderson. he leans left. senior political consultant on the rick santorum presidential campaign and republican political consultant j
down if you make a bad bet. in the meantime by the way, we also made sure that all the help that we provided those banks was paid back every single dime with interest. now, governor romney has said he wants to repeal dodd-frank. and i appreciate and it appears we've got some agreement that a marketplace to work has to have some regulation. but in the past governor romney has said he just wants to repeal dodd-frank. roll it back. so the question is, does anybody out there think that the big problem we had is that there was too much oversight and regulation of wall street? because if you do, then governor romney is your candidate. but that's not what i believe. >> sorry, jim, but that's just not the facts. look, we have to have regulation on wall street. that's why i'd have regulation. but i wouldn't designate five banks as too big to fail and give them a blank check. that's one of the unintended consequences of dodd-frank. we need to get rid of that provision because it's killing regional and small banks. they're getting hurt. let me mention other regulation in dodd-frank. you're say
tuition low for our young people. when it comes to our tax code, governor romney and i both agree our corporate tax rate is too high, so i want to lower it, particularly for manufacturing, taking it down to 25%. i also wants to close those loopholes that are giving incentives for companies that are shipping jobs overseas. i want to provide tax breaks for companies that are investing here in the united states. on energy, governor romney and i both agree we need to boost american energy production. and oil and natural gas production are higher than they've been in years. but i also believe that we have to look at the energy sources of the future, like wind, solar and biofuels. and to make those investments so all this is possible -- now, in order for to us do it, we have to close our deficit, and one of the things we've been discussing tonight, how do we deal with our tax code and make sure we are reducing spending in a responsible way and how do we have enough revenue in those investments? this is a difference, because governor romney's central economic plan calls for a $5 trillion tax
